I am pleased to say the tree is decorated - hurrah!
I even manage to wrap gifts yesterday and look what happened....
They might be teenagers but they cannot resist sneaking a peek under the tree!
More beautiful squares have arrived for the Blanket of Love....
Thank you so much, I promise each and every one will be used.
My mum and I are going to set aside some time to sit together and join them all.
Update on the shop leak... it is drying out and looks HORRIBLE!
I've got a mass of paperwork and quotes to organise before this will sorted.
I don't feel there is any point in rushing what with Christmas around the corner
and it is going to take a loooooooong time for it to completely dry.
It will get sorted but I have to admit I've shed a few tears of frustration over it all.
Now to something nicer and festive...
Need a quick gift or a little treat for someone?
Fill a jar with some goodies and make a decoration.
This was one of my Friday Die Day projects and I found the jar in the shop the other day and
thought I would mention it again.
I've used Classic Scallop Circle to cut an assortment of die cuts, but any circular dies
would work, including pretty edged ones like Stately Circles.
Fold each one in half.
Then into quarters.
Until you have 8 in total.
You then arrange them as shown.
This is the reverse, place a full circle so that you have a base to stick them to.
You then add another layer, once dry open out the 'pockets'.
For the middle, a couple of buttons and twine.
Glossy Accents is just the job to keep the buttons in place.
Attach to ribbon, paper or fabric to wrap around your jar.
Today is clinic day at the hospital, we will meet with Elliott's consultant Henry to
chat about how things are going. I had better not tell Henry that his
Christmas card is still in the very early stages of preparation
(aka just a blank piece of card and envelope!)
Time is really rushing by now...just one week - eeekkk!!
Take care friends.
